Get Me To A Monastery

Version originale (4:34)

Get,
Get me to a monastery,
‘Cause if this is what it means to be free,
Then I don’t need it.
Get,
Get me to the church on time,
‘Cause I’ve had enough of secular life,
You can keep it.

I wanna get up at the crack of dawn
And not speak to anyone,
Just eat, sleep and meditate on
What we mean by God.

Drop,
Drop me in the wilderness,
‘Cause I’d rather starve than live in a mess
That you call progress.
Lock,
Lock me in a padded cell,
‘Cause I suddenly don’t feel very well,
It all seems pointless.

I wanna get up at the crack of dawn
And not speak to anyone,
Just eat, sleep and meditate on
What we mean by God.

Let,
Let the people choose -
Well, it’s heads you win and heads you lose.
It’s your call now.
So get,
Get me to a monastery,
‘Cause you’ve shown me things I don’t wanna see.
And I’ve seen it all now,
I’ve seen it all now.

And I wanna get up at the crack of dawn
And not speak to anyone,
Just eat, sleep and meditate on
What we mean by God,
By God,
By God,
By God,
By God.
